Caspers....my fav of 1989. I had it on cassette many moons but was eaten by the beast. Love this gig.

Only wish I did, although I'm one of the worst sources in the world for that kind of info.

I was there that night. I've only seen it on VHS a time or two, and I don't think it's really evident, but I clearly remember when the giant video monitors came on for the first time during the show at the beginning of the second set. China Cat was just starting to pull together. Jerry wasn't singing yet, and he could notice all the people in the front part of the audience cheering and looking up to their right. There was a close-up of him on screen looking up over his shoulder to check out what was catching everybody's attention. The expression on his face when he realized it was only a mirror image of himself was priceless. Like, "Oh jeez, not THAT guy!"
